A209797 - Simply. Chloe Dao Charmeuse Blouse w/ GeorgetteTrim
I really don't know how to explain this one! The sleeves are just attached in a weird way! It has to be a design flaw...You can almost see what I mean in the picture...the underside of the sleeve is too short? I'm stuck with it, as my 30 days expired before I noticed!
beautiful construction however very boxy fit
I would only recommend this top to someone who is trying to hide a belly or is very straight up and down. If you have an hourglass shape, like me, I wouldn't recommend it. I had to reorder to a smaller size and then when it arrived... it made me look fat! Did absolutely nothing for me at all. I would think that given the princess seaming and semi- fit that it would have had a tapered waist or pin tuck detailing at waist at the sides or even the back. This was made in the boxy straight shape of a men's shirt (below) the bust line. If you have large arms, I wouldn't recommend either. Very nicely constructed and pretty top. Putting a slim belt on, didn't help either and to difficult to alter or have altered.
I Got Both Colors In This Top. Not Boxy At All, Very Nice.
Boxy and too big!
I was looking forward to getting this top, especially with the Lunch SP price! But, even with the great price, it didn't worth it. It was too big, and it looks too boxy: no figure flattering. I love Chloe's clothes, but not this one.
Wanted to love this. Great fabric and idea. However it is just abig square no shape at all. Startedto take to a taylor but not worth it.
Not Good for Me
I purchased both the chartreuse and the silver in a small. They fit throgh the chest just fine, but it seemed snug on the sleeves, just enough to make it uncomfortable for me. I think a medium would have been too big.
Also, the colors did nothing for me. I have a lot of yellow in my skin tone. And it now being mid-winter, it is very prominent. These colors just washed me out even more. I sent both back.
This is my first Chloe Dao item. Just wore it to an event, and it was so very pretty. I received many compliments on the color and the style. Ms. Dao, bring us more. You create such stylish clothing.
I got the grey color in XL (I wear a 16) and it fits great. The material is very pretty and very well made. The grey color looks silver and goes with everything. Wish it came in other colors besides yellow.
Very Pretty Shirt
This shirt is lovely. Even my husband commented and he never says anything about my clothes. It does run large though. I got a small and could have worn an xs even though I'm a size 12-14 usually.
Runs a little large
This is a beautiful blouse - I purchased the large, as I'm a 12-14, but had to return it for the medium. Hoping that will fit perfectly. The chiffon ruffles are really special without being "frilly":. I love Chloe's designs!
I received this in the grey and it's great - not shiny as it looks on TV which is a good thing. I like the bottom ruffle as it peeks out under a bolero or short jacket. I am back for the chartreuse. (if you are between sizes, size up)
High End Look
Recently purchased a very expensive jacket from another store & had second thoughts about ordering the cream silk blouse that was shown under it for $198. Really-how much of it shows under a jacket? Chloe to the rescue! Ordered the charmeuse-love "off" colors & this did not disappoint, but rather updated a neutral. Great detail down the front placket, fabric covered buttons and the bottom edging is so feminine-it will easily pull double duty with jeans for an evening out. Washes great, love the darts for shape. Yes, it is a bit shiny but everything this season is sparkle & shine-just have fun & enjoy it!
